I was reading an article the other day that was talking about crossbows, and why they are legal, the reasoning as to why there has been a big boom interest for them, and their early supporters. There is no doubt that crossbows are a booming business in the modern market for bow hunting. You can just look at the numbers. As I was reading the article there were a few statistics stuck out to me. First, did you know that in the past five years, 16 states have legalized the use of crossbows during archery season, unrestricted? Just a decade ago, there were only three states that could make that claim!
has been notorious for their defense of the sport of bow hunting and archery as a whole--especially for crossbows. This news was not new to me, because I had understood that they have been for crossbows for some time now. I am a firm believer in their philosophy. If you have a bow in your hand, that is all that matters. The bow hunting community is what matters! TenPoint understands that crossbows are a good way to get hunters interested in the sport and they also know the potential that crossbows have to prolong the sport for seasoned hunters. I personally have been able to continue hunting after sustaining a shoulder injury.
In this day and age, why is it that people still have a stigma about using crossbows. Is it the trigger? If it is, then what is the justification when you use a bow release aid? We should not have these issues amongst ourselves in the hunting community. Getting our youth involved in the sport, whether it be with crossbows or archery bows, should be the primary objective. Thank you, TenPoint crossbows for continually advocating the use of crossbows and showing us that there is nothing wrong with people who shoot one.
